The City of University Park Municipal Court accepts cash, personal checks, money orders, cashier’s checks and credit cards as form of payment. Depending on the nature of your case, fines may be paid by mail, online or in person.
Please do not mail in cash. When mailing personal checks, money orders or cashier’s checks, be sure to include your name and case numbers with the checks for proper credit. Payments made by mail cannot be accepted without a plea from the defendant.  The plea form is located at the bottom of the page and should be mailed along with the payment.

Payment Plan

If ordered to pay a fine and cost, and you cannot pay, notify the court immediately. You may be able to arrange a payment plan but you must get permission from the court. A $15 state-mandated administrative fee will be assessed if the extension exceeds 30 days from the date you were found guilty.

Jail Credit

If you have been incarcerated, you may request credit for time served. To request credit for time served, you must complete the form and provide proof of incarceration from a jail or prison that includes the dates you were incarcerated. If you have not already entered a plea of guilty or nolo contendere for the case(s) you are requesting jail credit for, you will be required to do so.
For your convenience, a list of all current fine amounts is provided at the bottom of this page. The fines posted do not include any late fees or warrant fees. Should you have additional questions please allow two working days from the day you receive your citation before contacting the Municipal Court.  
Defendants who fail to handle their fines or appear in court on or before the designated date are subject to a fine amount increase and potential arrest. An additional $50 will be added if a citation moves to warrant status. For more information on this topic, click on the Warrant Information.
Your warrant may be canceled if you plead “no contest” or “guilty” to the warrant charge and pay the find. Capias Pro Fine (capias warrants) must be paid in full. 

If you want to plead Not Guilty or resolve your charge after an arrest warrant has been issued, please contact the Municipal Court.

The base fine amount is only valid if your fine is paid on time. If your case is in warrant status, it is recommended that you call the Court to obtain the correct fine amount. All fines include State Costs.

Fine amounts are subject to change.

If your violation is not listed, please call the Court at (214) 987-5331.
